Environmentally Safe Wire Rope Lubricant, Dynagard “E” is a revolutionary non-toxic 97% biodegradable wire rope lubricant that meets the performance levels of petroleum-based greases in areas of fluid film and corrosion protection of wire rope strands. Exceptional for manual application; Dynagard “E” also meets the operational requirements for all Kirkpatrick Wire Rope Lubrication System Models providing optimum coating and penetration prolonging the working life of wire rope while at the same time meeting environmental concerns of our customers. Dynagard “E” was the first seed oil based high viscosity grease introduced onto the world market in 1993. It also was the benchmark product used in 2002 to establish MIL-PRF-18458C Type II requirements under the “Environmentally Preferable Lubricants” program (NSWCCD, Code 632).
